G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Got this memory in, and it worked great, for a while (on the first day).

Cons: THEN, the computer started doing random reboots, and random freezes. So, I thought I'd run a diagnostic on the memory. Went to pull it out, and da*n near burned my fingers on it, it was so hot. SO, hooked up a fan for the memory (memory has ALWAYS run hot from my experience, just not THIS HOT). Ran a series of tests with the fan in place, diagnostics are repeatedly clean, and the sticks seem to run alot cooler now.

Other Thoughts: 5-5-5-15, running at 1.85v. Works great aside from the heat issue noted above, which has been solved.

SAMSUNG 470 Series MZ-5PA256/US 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Laptop boots in under 10s. File access times, WAY WAY BETTER than a conventional drive. And in Win7 (High Performance profile), file transfer rates up to 200MB/s or so. Easy setup. So far, no issues whatsoever. And compared to some others, reasonable price, along with better reliability. They have DEFINITELY done their work on testing etc - impressive. I'm in shock.

Cons: Won't cook me breakfast.

Other Thoughts: Can't say how amazed I am with the transfer rates/access times, ease of setup, and reliability so far. I was hesitant in buying one of these with black-or-white reviews of SSDs in general, but these guys seem to really know what they're doing.

Western Digital Scorpio Black WD5000BEKT 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Have had this for 6+ months, and no problems. Replaced a Se***ate that started flaking on me 3 months after I bought the laptop (no recognition on boot, and/or random freezes and clicking). Anyhow, this is ALOT faster than the old drive, alot quieter, and alot cooler. No complaints.

Cons: Won't entertain my cat
